Frédéric Fekkai at The Mark Hotel

Last month during my visit to New York City for Fashion Week I stopped by at Frédéric Fekkai at The Mark Hotel to get my hair blow dried. It was a much needed blow out. The New York weather makes my hair so frizzy, and what I call” “poofy” i.e. too much volume (LOL I’m not even sure this word exist in the English dictionary). And running around town all day, whose got time to do their own hair?!!

Fabulous Anthony at the NEW Fekkai Madison at The Mark Hotel just gave me Hollywood waves! Luv him:)

I crossed Central Park in a cab all the way to the East Side and arrived at the Frédéric Fekkai at The Mark Hotel. The building was so pretty and newly renovated which is kind of rare for NYC, everything is normally so ancient. My service was impeccable, and the best part was that I got to do my nails and my hair at the same time. I felt like I can totally can get used this life. Wouldn’t you?:)

Loved my hair stylist Anthony! He blew dry my hair and gave the perfect Hollywood curls without even using a curling iron. And Gabriela who did my nails with Essie Sexy Divine did a great job in making my manicure last for 4 days! I yet need to investigate which top coat she used on my nails. I assume it was Essie as well.

How To Make Your Salon Treatments Last

Want to get the most out of your professional primping during these economic times? Well, stretch your dollars by stretching the weeks between your salon visits. Renowned Italian hairstylist, Riccardo Maggiore of Riccardo Maggiore Salon in New York City, suggests trying these at-home maintenance tricks. 

Haircut: Visit an experienced stylist and get a precise cut. If you have short hair, which often requires monthly appointments, go with a style that grows out well. After a haircut, keep your ends hydrated by using a daily leave-in conditioner. If ends look frizzy some days, work in a small amount of shine-enhancing oil to smooth them.
